Alternatives to campfires?
#1
I prefer not to breathe smoke and I don't like smelling like smoke from sitting around a campfire.  But the social aspect of being with friends around a fire is one of my favorite things.

Is there an alternative to a campfire that will still provide the entertainment and focus of interest that a fire brings, and also give friends a reason to sit around and talk all night?

I've seen many campers with propane fired camp fire pits.

Some at the Flagstaff GTG and Colorado GTG saw my propane campfire sold by Lowes for $100. We had a fire ban in Colorado so until that ended is was the only fire we had. You do not get the popping, hissing and smoke.

A full keg of beer often has that effect.

Welllll, I seem to remember that one night on the Colorado, AnneMarie put out a dozen tea lights on the fire ring rocks because it was too windy for a real fire and it worked exactly as the campfire would have..... Big Grin Big Grin Angel

Amazon has tabletop ventless portable fireplaces for about $40 that don’t have all that smoke. They can be used indoors also.

How about sitting around, playing musical instruments together -- in the dark?

How about just talking -- in the dark?

How about getting everyone on their backs looking at the stars?

How about sitting with your backs together, letting your eyes adjust to the darkness, and telling what you see?
